Perhaps inadvertently, this video highlights one of the weaker aspects of Damian Johnson's game. Regardless of what else he can do, Johnson is not a good shooter. This might be because he releases the ball when on his way down.
Johnson makes it onto the team largely on account of his five year career at the University of Minnesota. He is a 6'7 small forward an NBA calibre athlete, who unfortunately is dependent upon his athleticism. Johnson blocks shots and wins possessions by free-roaming defensively, and rebounds well for his height; however, in a half court offense, there's not a whole lot you can do with him. The same criticisms could also be levied at Stanley Robinson, and they didn't stop him from being drafted 59th overall, but Robinson is bigger and better. Nevertheless, I hereby predict that Damian Johnson will perform more than respectably in Israel for his first professional season next year.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
